Advance Accident Repairs’ 26 employees are celebrating being awarded the BSK Kitemark certification just 18 months after opening for business.

To gain the Kitemark, bodyshops must prove they conform to standards covering skills, repair methods, equipment and materials.

The Chesterfield-based independent car body repairer, which is part of the GK Group, boasts a 23,000 sq ft workshop and can undertake category A structural aluminium repair work.

Grenville Taylor, bodyshop manager, said: “We found the BSI Kitemark standards to be a very good template for establishing a repair process for a new business.

“We have continued to grow a business through the recession in a declining industry, which we take as an indication that even in a recession core values of quality repair and customer service are just as important and probably regarded as more valuable.”
